Will you be in Rome on Thursday 13th of September? You may well want to take part in the very first "Pizza Romana Day"; keep a large round corner for a feast!
20 pizzaioli will be competing to make the best local pizza.
But what makes Roman pizza different from the classic Neapolitan version?
Italians describe it as "bassa" (thin crust) and "scrocchiarella" (very crispy). The dough of this pizza is often laid out with a rolling pin to prevent it from rising, it contains less water and it is cooked for longer for a crispier result.
